Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Can you spot the difference?

A bit of a change in the weather today – quite a different view from that we had on Sunday 13 April 2014.

What do you reckon?

It’s hard to believe that on Sunday we had glorious blue skies with not a cloud in sight….

These below were taken on Sunday 13 April whilst waiting for our English Breakfast to arrive at the Buccaneer Pub in Erimi village, Cyprus:

And today, Tuesday 15 April 2014 – I drove to work with heavy skies behind me and over the sea towards Akrotiri. This is my view on arriving home from work this evening:

So, we’re hoping the weather will pick up again for our friend Kathy’s arrival on Good Friday when she will be here for a couple of weeks over the Easter holidays, although it looks like we won’t be able to make any promises. Here’s the long term weather forecast for Limassol district of Cyprus from Accuweather for the next 10 days:

Fingers crossed that the weather pattern will change (I don’t hold any great faith in weather predictions for more than 3 days ahead when you live on a Mediterranean island) and it will be more like this instead:
